Clean and Simple

So this is what I was doing the other night, playing with the Spotty flowers and Spotty background clings from Hero Arts. Ok they're what I call Clean and Simple but I did enjoy just making them and the spotty flowers just cried out to be cut out and layered.
I cheekily added the Thank you sentiment cos now I can enter it in this week challenge at A Spoonful of Sugar.
But I had stamped out quite a few of flowers so I checked out the Mojo Monday sketch challenge and came up with this.



The sentiment is from Anita's stamps I've had for ages.

But I still had some flowers and I remember making a card like this ages ago. So using another sentiment stamp possibly from Anita's and a swirl punch finished this card.

Finally I had one flower left and using a Scor-pal to get the embossed lines and few gems to finish. Has you can see the swiss dots embossing folder from the Cuttlebug had worked hard to make these cards too.
Hopefully I will get into my craft room today now that things are settle down on the home front. Dad is looking much better but he has to wait till to be assess for Mum to come home from respite.
